Umbral Mantle Discussion

Oloro_Magic on [Primer] - Zirda G/W Creature Toolbox

Yes there is a concern that Joraga Treespeaker could be underwhelming, however in relationship to the Zirda, the Dawnwaker and Umbral Mantle combo, it represents a huge upside in that it can create infinite mana in addition to providing a 9th mana-dork for the combo in the first place. Yes there may be better options for the ninth mana dork in terms of efficiency, but wanting that extra copy Joraga Treespeaker has the highest upside in that slot. I do agree though that it is not the strongest of cards and there is potential that a different card could be better suited to that flex slot in the future. I have however been greatly impressed with Joraga Treespeaker thus far and for now at least am going to continue with it as a ninth mana-dork.

As for Devoted Druid, I did address this in short in the introduction that, yes, Devoted Druid combo is likely still the strongest thing to do in G/W Value, and the Lurrus of the Dream-Den based deck that has grown around that is very good, I however am very intrigued by the potential of Zirda, the Dawnwaker and believe that, with some work, this build could at the very least rival the Devoted Druid builds. Now, if I could play Devoted Druid in this deck I would, the combo would be too powerful to pass up and having that with Zirda, the Dawnwaker could potentially be incredible. Unfortunately, while Devoted Druid can be played within the conditions set by Zirda, the Dawnwaker, none of its enablers can, both Vizier of Remedies and Melira, Sylvok Outcast do not meet the condition. If an enabler exists I would play it, but if I am to continue with Zirda then unfortunately, until such a card is printed, Devoted Druid is just not something this deck can realistically do and still keep Zirda.

Thank you for the comment, I hope my response was at all informative.

Zirda offers a powerful option; Umbral Mantle combo. Once the cat nightmare is banned, I'd look at it.

With an animated manland, a reduced cost untap, and zirda, you can make that manland arbitrarily large, usually without forecasting the combo. Since your treasure hunt should make finding it simple, and manland support will benifit the deck anyway, it seems like a very low-cost sideboard plan.

Sword of the Paruns does a good job of imitating a second Umbral Mantle, though it may be slower than what you would want.

Burst of Strength and Stony Strength may also be decent, as they can give something vigilance for a turn or make Marwyn bigger and produce mana again.

I come from a casual and jank build style, so I'm not sure of these cards viability in a competitive deck, but hopefully these may give you some ideas.

Grind, I agree it would increase the power of the deck, but Ashnod's Altar is a dead draw unless the combo is in play, and I don't want to rely on combos like that for the Trainer decks.

Umbral Mantle is worth considering on its own merits though, especially with ways to grant Haste.

If you can find a replacement for Mass Hysteria, you can run Zirda, the Dawnwaker as an additional way to combo off by making the Umbral Mantle ability cheaper. I would vote for Footfall Crater as the replacement, since that can also give your infinitely big creature trample.

A solid deck, if I had to make any suggestions they would be:

Marwyn, the Nurturer just like your commander, Marwyn is a 1 card infinite mana combo with Umbral Mantle

Seedtime I’m not sure how much blue you see on average, but this card has always worked wonders for me.

Savage Summoning nothing is scarier then an uncounterable infinite mana Walking Ballista

As a fellow Cedh selvala player EVERYBODY PARL(T)AY [C-EDH][Combo][Primer]

With price in mind, I would like to suggest Marwyn, the Nurturer As she is a 1 card combo with Umbral Mantle

As well as suggesting Seedtime and Savage Summoning, 1 of course for the extra turn, and the other for an uncounterable Walking Ballista

I also personally love Mirror Entity with Wirewood Symbiote

Aside from these light suggestions I just love seeing solid Selvala decks, keep up the deck building!
